    Not anymore - IT is a great place to be again

    Advice to Management

    Please keep IT productive, evolving and excited. You need us, we want to deliver for you and we need this CIO to do it.

    Pros

    People are friendly, nice perks such as free food, coffee, parties, work life balance is good

    Cons

    Hard to progress past a certain level without a PhD, masters degree doesn't differentiate from bachelors, people do not respect opinions if you don't have a PhD

    Advice to Management

    Care more about what people who do the actual work have to say instead of thinking them as a pair of hands

    Pros

    can learn a decent amount about the industry and standards

    Cons

    this place is a joke with too much money to waste... rampant favoritism, consistent attempts by management to micromanage and make up for incompetency, and lack of trust and transparency. when it comes to doing the work: there is compliance, then there is regeneron-style compliance which enforces way too many silly, over-the-top rules to over complicate even menial tasks. everything little bump in a project becomes a huge deal and is blown way out of proportion... completing minor things require some massive undertakings. despite what they claim, this is not progressive at all, but regeneron has tons of cash to shell out so they can continue down this path for now... very interested in seeing the fallout

    Advice to Management

    curb nepotism, hire the right people for the job, learn to actually manage employees, cut dependence on contractors

    Pros

    Yearly bonus and raise is never disappointing and a rarity for most local companies. There are also plenty of opportunities for advancement for those who are motivated, driven, and a little tenacious.

    Cons

    It's a stressful environment because all employees are held to an extremely high standard. This can be exhausting some days, but if you're committed and up for the challenge, it can shape you for the better.

    Advice to Management

    Remember we're all human.

    Pros

    Innovative, science focused, genuinely tries to do good

    Cons

    Necessary systems in support functions like HR, IT, procurement, haven't been put in place to keep up with rapid pace of growth. Good scientists are rewarded with promotions to management positions that they are not always qualified for.

    Advice to Management

    The company is too large to try to continue to run it as if it were still a start up. The culture is already mostly gone, and a functioning system where employees can efficiently find what they need is more valuable. It's past the time where most people know "the guy to talk to for that".
    Employees should be able to review and give feedback about their managers.
